  • PL/1? Anyone got hardware or a good compiler?

    I would love to enter this, and would want to fun of working in PL/1 for it. I might be able to get one of the mainframes I have access to at work for my use, but I wouldn't be able to bring it there, I would have to SSH to it. Ideally, best of all would be if anyone has a Multics system somewhere, if you do, I have some Y2K fixes :P

    see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PL/I for info on the language.

    So, would something like using a remote system for the development/compiling/testing be alright?

    Probably not on the remote system. At least, not to receive credit for "a system from the 70s or earlier." If you enter and pass pre-qualification, you're welcome to use your own system of choice; if that's SSHing to a mainframe somewhere else, mazel tov. ;-)
